Uncertainty surrounds UK’s Warrior upgrade
Lockheed Martin UK is hoping to secure a production contract for the UK’s Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme (WCSP) ‘as early as possible’ as uncertainty continues to cast a shadow over one of the British Army’s flagship modernisation initiatives.
LMUK has been under contract since 2011 to upgrade five variants of the Warrior vehicle and extend the fleet’s out-of-service date to around 2040.
The company is now six years into the development phase with this planned to finish in 2020 when a follow-on production phase should get underway.
